Role Play Village Opens!
Exciting New Housing Development in Norton Canes
Another new community housing development has opened today in Norton Canes. Norton Pines is based within Norton Canes Primary Academy and is a fully equipped role play village situated in the 2 – 3 year old Ducklings provision.
This exciting new development includes a hospital, vets, bakery and both a fire and police station.
Children attending the setting are set to have enormous fun getting into character and acting out real life performances such as shopping, attending emergencies and looking after others.
A range of community heroes were in attendance at the village opening today including a Firefighter, Police Officer, Paramedic, Nurse, Armed Response Dog Handler and Royal Mail Officer.
Mrs Hadley – Head Teacher at Norton Canes Primary Academy - commented “role play is an important part of child development, as it builds a wide range of skills including creativity, communication, physical development and problem solving. Here at Norton Canes Primary Academy we are immensely proud of our new village and look forward to seeing our children develop the social, emotional and physical skills that role play brings as well as practical life skills such as dressing themselves, learning how to cooperate, and share with others”.
There are currently limited spaces available in Ducklings. All 3 year olds and some 2 year olds are eligible for at least 15 hours funded early years provision per week. To find out more contact our school office 01543 279402.
